'Wild Men of the Kalahari' (1930) 30m, prod. C. Ernest Cadle. In one of the earliest "talking pictures" shot in South-West Africa (now Namibia), expedition leader and lecturer Dr. C. Ernest Cadle of the Cameron-Cadle expedition describes the Kung Bushmen as "among the most treacherous creatures on earth". He then "baited them as we would an animal" to gather them for camera shots, and noted their eating habits ("he doesn't chew, but simply swallows like a dog"). The cinematographer was Paul Hoefler.

yes indeed, we have to admire the good old days where there was much less pretence and far less embellishing

Subject: Wild Men...Great Film
Other than some creative/broken editing in the last 6 min. this film was great. A must watch. The only reason for the 4 star rather than a 5 was the editing at the end.
